Prep 10 minutes, plus marinating time
Cook 15 minutes, approximately
2 tbsp red curry paste (you can use green or yellow if you prefer)
400ml can good quality coconut milk
1 tsp salt
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3 cm chunks
Flatbreads, pea shoots, tomatoes, cucumber, lime to serve
4-6 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for half an hour
1. In a medium bowl mix the curry paste with the coconut milk and the salt. Add the chicken and leave to marinate for a few hours or overnight.
2. When marinated, thread the chicken on the skewers and place on a hot barbecue or griddle. Leave to caramelise for 3-4 minutes a side, turning each time for even cooking. Ensure the chicken is thoroughly cooked through.
3. When the chicken is lovely and charred and golden, remove from the heat and serve with flatbreads and the delicious crunchy salad of pea shoots, tomatoes and cucumber. Sprinkle with lime to serve.
